The principal of the school gave the welcoming address, saying the village had lost hope due to the earthquake damage but the school is a symbol and model of hope. In April 2015, WFWP began emergency relief operations in the area affected by the earthquake and through their "World Family Love 1% donation project" gave the gift of the Hope School to the 400 local students.
